Summary:

Following a build-up of macroeconomic imbalances that had resulted in declining growth, rising debt, and a widening current account deficit, the Egyptian authorities undertook decisive policy actions since the launch of the reform program in November 2016. These efforts are increasingly yielding results in terms of restored market confidence, strengthening growth momentum, a narrowing of budget and current account deficits, and adequate foreign exchange reserves. Sustaining the reform effort will help secure macroeconomic stabilization and unlock Egypt’s potential for higher growth and much needed job creation.
